The CR-V (which stands for Comfortable Runabout Vehicle) continues to lead the compact tall-wagon class. Along with its thrifty-yet-swift four-cylinder engine, the fully developed 2007-’11 edition excelled at interior-space efficiency. Although perhaps considered an entry-level vehicle, interior styling which could be trimmed in leather, was also a big plus, along with a quieter and more comfortable ride than before. With the back seat folded, the CR-V’s ample cargo area could easily swallow large/bulky objects.
